Creating a VCD for free is a labor intensive process. There are countless products which cost money that claim to be "FREE" and in fact, are not. It's a minefield. Anyway, there are various ways of creating VCDs for free, this is the easiest I can find.
First convert the file to mpeg1 VCD compatible with SUPER:
Then package the mpeg you just created into a VCD format you can burn to disc (.bin and .cue files) with VCDImagerGUI:

Camfrog doesn't offer a Ubuntu version of their product, so here's a guide in getting it to work for Ubuntu 8.10.
- Download the RPM here: http://download.camfrog.com/serverlinux.phtml
- Install alien: sudo apt-get install alien
- Install libstdc++.so.6: apt-get install lib32stdc++6
- Change directory to the file you downloaded from CamFrog and type: alien camfrog_x.xx.rpm
- Now install the .deb package: dpkg -i camfrogserver_4.2-2_all.deb
- Now just configure according to the instructions in the manual: man camfrogserver.conf
- You may want to delete /etc/rc.d/init.d/camfrogserver since it won't work under Ubuntu.
